it’s been a while

From a work perspective, the time from October 1st until just about now is insane.  So blogs, social media and general life maintenance gets put on a back burner.   When I get a breath, I find things such as, having forgotten to renew my car tag (going on Monday), having to get caught up on vet visits – my Chewie and Snoopy which I would continue to not remember this one – and taking the tree down (I swear it’s coming down this weekend).

However, I also start to get out again.  Having got caught in Georgia’s snow disaster in 2014, I waited with baited breath this past time to get some good shots.  There was zero snow on the ground, but we did end up with ice again.  This has made for some interesting shots.  I did go out in general to shoot in black and white rather than just applying the layer in post production, but got some color too.  Here are some of my favorites.

Christmas Card 2014

So every year I have my holiday card as a photo of my cats.  This year I went all out and made a winter wonderland in the back yard.  While I was putting it together the cats were very interested – meowing inside not able to wait to get outside.  Once I got the camera up and was ready for them, I let them out – they then had zero interest — uggghh.  So the 1st photo is that of the very Christmassy set up that I did – the second, the picture I ended up with for the card.   Sometimes I wish my cats were dogs, it would be so nice to say “sit” and have them do so.  Oh well.
